The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

Rated4out of5byJDwdzfromWhy have I never heard of this before?I stumbled across this product and had some laughs reading the reviews... the entertainment turned to curiosity and I had to give it a try. Practiced at home as suggested and didn't have any issues (I was worried that it might leak or be messy, which it wasn't). Took it with me on our weekend backpacking trip and loved not having to find a spot, worry if someone can see me, or remove clothes in the very cold am (just unzip pants or pull down thermals a bit in front). Definitely makes having to go so much less of a hassle!

Rated4out of5byLayZ CamperfromGreat productDecided to try the freshette for a cold weather camping trip. Was not looking forward to dropping 3 layers of clothing to pee, not to mention freezing my butt off. So I took the plunge and got a freshette. Practiced at home twice - it was very simple to use right off the bat. Worked great while camping too. Just be sure to lean forward a bit at the end so all the pee drains out of the cup. Also, wearing a panty liner would help keep you dry if you're not drying off with TP. Overall, not only did the freshette get the job done, the laughs we all got out of it were worth the price of the device and then some.

Rated5out of5bynightworks1fromHiking just got better...My husband has always gotten on me for not drinking enough water while backpacking, but when it takes the same amount of thought, planning, and action to use the restroom on the trail as it would to plan a vacation to Tahiti, a little dehydration didn't seem so bad. Thanks to this, I no longer limit my water intake, and drink like a fish on the trail!
I originally had another feminine urinary device that also worked well, but I would occasionally have issues; it was a great product that prevented me from having to find the perfect tree, but was still not perfect, itself. I decided to try the Freshette to see if there were any significant differences, and I can definitely say "YES, there are!" With this device, you can go wherever without having to hike an additional 30 miles into the forest for privacy when the trail appears to be on 3 different sides of you. No undressing, no partial undressing, no real worry of overflowing while going. My other FUD was a little smaller & you had to work to almost get it to suction to your body to keep from making a mess; the tube was a little small, too. With this, you just line it up and go; the tube is long enough to keep urine from splashing, and the freedom to stand up to do business is unbelievable. My other device is small enough to be stowed in my purse to be used as a safety net when back in "civilization" (it does a decent enough job to warrant that), but the Freshette is definitely a permanent staple in my backpacking/day hiking gear.
You'll know you're a convert when you start telling complete strangers about it!

Rated5out of5bybarb in abqfromGreat device, just bought my second one.This was the second one I purchased. Lost the first one. I did like the color of the first one better. I highly recommend this device, it is sturdy, unlike another one on the market. It is easy to use, but does take one or two practices.

Rated5out of5byWildChildfromMy new best friendAt first I did not see the point of having this, I finally gave in and purchased it. It has become an item I try to have with me when I am out, I not only use it when I am backpacking or hiking but anytime I have to use a porta potty or a not so nice restroom. After you get over the initial idea of standing up to pee it is very easy to use. It is small enough to pack away but not so small where it can become messy when using.
I am glad I finally bought it.

Rated5out of5byChristine the peregrinofromLiberating!Where has this been all my life? Awesome, totally liberating. I can't believe that I served nearly 25 years in the military, only to discover this wonderful item once I retired. Can you imagine how handy this would be on a road march when you are the only female? I bought this for my upcoming hike on the Camino de Santiago, but I'm going to use it on road trips too. I'm older with a weak bladder and I get so sick of focusing on where I can pee next. Not anymore! I'll just whip this out of the glove box and take care of business.

Rated5out of5byfiddleskittlefromI adore this contraptionI love it. I can't say enough good things about it. It is small, light, easy to use and SO useful. It never seemed right that my boyfriend could go so easily when it was such a hassle for me. Not anymore. Now when we go snowshoeing I don't have to undress half my body and awkwardly hover and hope I don't spray everywhere while freezing my tush off. I also love using it while camping because I feel a lot safer not exposing myself in the dead of the night (who knows what kind of bugs, plants, and worse - people, are lurking?). Just go buy one these and never limit your water intake to avoid peeing as much again.
